Claustrophobia Help with Hypnotherapy

claustrophobia HelpMany people seek hypnotherapy to help them overcome irrational fears and phobias. These fears can be debilitating and impact the quality of life. Hypnotherapy is an excellent way to release unnecessary fears. Claustrophobia is a fear of being in an enclosed space, a fear of not being able to escape when wanting or needing to. It is common for this to end in a panic attack or in acute anxiety.

The sufferer may experience it as feeling trapped and unable to breathe. Sometimes people can get away with it for a long time. However, there comes a point when it needs to be overcome, for example when needing an MRI scan or maybe wanting to go away by airplane, etc.

There is no need to live with a fear like that and claustrophobia can be cured completely with the right treatment. Sometimes in hypnosis it’s possible to work on the roots of the phobia (ie something in the past that has caused it) and release it, with other clients I might use NLP techniques to neutralise it. Some of my clients have experienced great benefit from using EFT, which can also help to let go of phobias.

I tend to tailor my approach to the needs of the individual client, depending on their ability to go into hypnosis (some people are very good at hypnosis, as they have a natural ability to go into trance). Always, the aim is to allow my client to be free of the phobia and its limiting fears as quickly as possible.
